Perched right on the hill overlooking Yanba's Main Beach we could not have got a better location. Views of the beach and lighthouse from our balcony were superb. The rooms were generously sized with a small separate room with single bed which was great for two ladies sharing. Relief Managers were very friendly with local tips for restaurants (which were...

We stayed for 2 days with a 4 year old. The hotel is very close to the beach and the park where you can have some barbeque. A fully self-contained affordable place for a short stay if you are only interested going to the beach. The people in front desk (owners) were lovely. The room is neat and tidy. There...

What a wonderful little place! Had only booked 1 night but immediately decided to stay for another when we arrived. Not flashy at all but spotlessly clean and had everything we needed to be comfortable. Had room 1 which was definitely the best room, top floor with private balcony overlooking Yamba main beach. Would highly recommend for those who wanting...

Well where I begin, The advertise unit on wotif is fully correct as we choose a unit with ocean views well my impression of ocean views is where you look out your window and the ocean goes on and on not the partial views of the bay where the ocean is seen however, this is broken off by the break...

Just spent 2 nights at Surf Motel in Yamba. Great location, within walking distance to lovely restaurants. Went to sleep listening to the waves lapping the shore. Room was spacious with all amenities, clean and bright. Comfortable bed and a lovely spot all round. Friendly and welcoming staff and very reasonable rates.

We decided to stay in Yamba at the very last minute. The Surf Motel is on the ocean side and had a ground floor room with an ocean view. The room was spotless and huge. The view was from a lounge/dining alcove and was of course gorgeous...looking over the swimming beach. There was room for our new car to park...

This is arguably the cleanest motel I have ever stayed in. It was spotless!! The rooms are a great size and well appointed. the location is right next to the surf club beach , which is a little protected from the main swell and a short walk to Pippi Beach a larger more open surf. A short walk to town...

If you are wanting the room with a view like in the photos make sure that is what you ask for. We had a ground floor room, which overlooked the fence and driveway. It didn't matter as we weren't there long. The room was small, dated, but very clean and comfy. The bathroom was also the same. There wasn't much...

We booked over the phone only seeing photos on line. The room was very comfortable and would be very good for longer stays as it was self contained. It was within walking distance of town, the Pacific Hotel, restaurants and beach. We walked everywhere and i didn't realise Yamba was so hilly! Back to the room. I know that water...
